Best battle yet.

So much could be said for both these games and I hate to see FF6 have a landslide victory without at least some mention of Suiko2's finer points.

Suikoden 2 is the quintessential example of a sequel done right. Just enough in the narrative department to make it a fantastic experience to both fans of the first and newcomers whilst maintaining it's identity of a direct continuation. It took everything that Suiko1 did and +1'ed it. Getting 108 stars of destiny was perfectly challenging without being unfair for the invested player. I could go on...

My vote at the end of the day goes to FF6 though. On any given day that you ask me what my favorite game of all time is/was it would be toss between FF6, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger and Mass Effect (trilogy). Yes, I do rank Mass Effect that high.

(including subs because they count dammit)
You know very well that they do not. :p Or perhaps more accurately, none of them are going to get in before any of their children counterparts. Come to think of it, were any of the FE4 substitutes in Awakening's spotpass maps? I can't remember for sure, but my gut says no. I'd expect to see Daniela and her amazing flying horse before we see any of the FE4 substitutes. :p

@Arvis: I just recently finished SC myself and am now playing Cold Steel. Yes, I felt like SC was harder BUT only at the start. The first couple of chapters were quite challenging but I felt like it calmed down after you got some quartz and equipment under your belt.

WHY DIDN'T I SEE THIS?!?! Game screens look awesome. I hope Rean and Co. are in the game in at least some capacity. Is that Rean in the trench coat? Must be:

 ToCS2 kind of ends on a cliff hanger (i.e., there's a lot introduced that doesn't get explored more) although that part of the story is pretty much finished. Trails in the Sky the 3rd supposedly takes a different take on the story, so this might take the same route with the story?

I love Trails of Cold Steel because it's like any manga/anime whose world just expands and the core story gets more depth with every installment. I wouldn't mind if ToCS3 was not the last one. They could also do more mash ups with the other series Sky and Azure/Zero.

edit: It seems that this is the case!!!

Where does the story of Trails of Cold Steel III start from?

“It starts a year and a half after the end of Trails of Cold Steel II. The members of Class VII, including the protagonist Rean, have graduated from the military academy and are each walking their own path. While the situation where Rean is being used by Osborne in Trails of Cold Steel II continues, he takes a new step at the beginning of Trails of Cold Steel III.

“This time, we’ll depict the western side of the empire, and you can also go to Byronia Island where there is a giant god statue similar to the one in Nord.

“The Trails in the Sky characters from Liberl Kingdom will appear again and join the party, and you’ll link up with a certain person from Trails in the Zero. The mystery of Rean’s birth will also be revealed in this game.”


I never knew people cared so much about costumes.

I don't get it either but for each their own.

sorry for necropost but this game is wonderful. Downloaded it the other day. Hits the spot. Easy to pick up and play, fun battle system. Happy to get into some Ys; major Falcom fan in the making.

Started playing my first Ys -game; Memories of Celceta. Somehow segwayed into that from Trails of Cold Steel and high praise of Falcom from a few RPGFan podcasts.

Well, I love it; battle system is really fun. Also, music is great and seems to be a general theme with Falcom games.

Yeah, that story was Revolutionary Girl Utena levels of fucked up, from what I remember. It was great.

Asellus is the best out of the 7 IMO

I'm liking it, I reserve final judgment until the game is over hopefully though.

Oh, wow, I didn't last 10 hours with that game.
